Teaching Dance to Older People (TOP) is a popular course with dance teachers. It is a great way to explore teaching dance to older people or to enhance your understanding of teaching this group of dance learners. We look at some key issues to consider when teaching older people as well as exploring some of the potential health and social benefits that dance can offer this population.

The Embodiment Conference is running at the moment and finishes on 25 October. You can watch online presentations and sessions live or for a day or two afterwards for free.
The conference is organised by a company in Brighton and Hove so just along the coast from me in Sussex, UK. There are 1000 + speakers at the conference covering a range of topics including Dance & Creativity; Movement & Anatomy; Keynote and Meditation and Breath Work. Speakers come from across the globe. I have watched and listened to some great sessions this past few days. I love Tom Myers work on Anatomy Trains and I have had his book of the same name for many years. His session on the Anatomy of Vitality gives a top embodiment tip of ‘stay curious’. I couldn’t agree more. Being curious has to be one of the best things I was taught about and encouraged to be. Being curious is such a wonderful way to approach dance teaching and learning. For as dance teachers we are also learning too.
